California, according to Gov. Newsom, is the land of freedom and opportunity where everyone with special regard for race, creed, and sexual fetish has the right to wear a mask and get castrated at taxpayer expense.
Indeed, California is so free that its government sites have a “banned states list”. I don’t think that outside of the Civil War such a thing existed, but ever since Ballotharvestan became a one-party state any crazy idea that Lorena Gonzalez, Scott Weiner, and any random oil fortune heir or billionaire tech founder comes up with becomes law faster than you can say “democracy dies in woke darkness”.
As of now, there are 26 states on the ‘Banned States List’ which means government employees can’t travel to them on business and sports competitions become a problem.
But who would want to attend events in Florida, Indiana, Ohio, and Texas anyway?
In a touch of East Germany in the West, traveling can require filing a “Request for Approval of Travel to Prohibited States”.
It didn’t take much to end up on the wrong side of the Sacramento Curtain.
W.R. Castle Elementary School in Johnson County, Kentucky struck out Linus reading passages from the New Testament in A Charlie Brown Christmas. The Charlie Brown Bill was introduced and signed to protect the religious freedom of students in Kentucky schools.
California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra, now Biden’s HHS secretary, claimed that the bill “could allow student-run organizations in colleges and K-12 schools to discriminate against classmates based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.”
That’s how Kentucky originally made the list.
After adding Missouri and Wyoming this year, California may be ending its boycott of America before every state except New York ends up on it.
California may soon lift a ban on state-funded travel to states with anti-LGBTQ+ laws and instead focus on an advertising campaign to bring anti-discrimination messages to red states.
Any resemblance to Gov. Newsom’s presidential promotion ads in Florida is purely coincidental, I’m sure. Using public monies to fund a national campaign across state lines for a governor would seem to be an abuse of office. But that ship probably sailed a long time ago. Either way, the iron curtain may fall.
The prohibition has prevented elected officials, state workers and university scholars from traveling to more than half of the country using the state’s money. That has posed a significant challenge to sports teams at public colleges and universities, which have had to find alternative funding sources to pay for their road games in states like Arizona and Utah.
But that’s always been the case and they didn’t care about inconveniences to normal people. No, this is about the boycott colliding with another leftist agenda item.
It has also complicated some of the state’s other policy goals, like using state money to pay for people who live in other states to travel to California for abortions.
Kill babies in other states or boycott those states for not castrating their boys? Tough call.
“In many instances, the travel ban has inadvertently caused California to isolate its services and citizens in a time when we are leading the nation in ensuring inclusivity and freedom,” said Democratic Assemblymember Rick Zbur, the former executive director of the advocacy group Equality California.
Building a giant wall with barbed wire around the state may have given people the impression that we’re not beacons of inclusivity and freedom. How could they have misunderstood our beautiful machine guns of equity and mines of tolerance?
Finally, Californians, like East Germans, will be able to bring their values of freedom to the degenerate capitalists suffering under the lash of their lackeys. They may even be able to buy fireworks.
